40 Ruth Street Perth, WaWhether you enter from the Ruth Street entrance or from the one on Edith Street, you will be amazed by this fascinating home that is located in a truly sensational location, a unique and vibrant urban enclave right in the heart of the city. The exclusive two street frontages conceal a property that has been shaped over more than 115 years into the beautiful home that exists today. The results, a multi-faceted home that not only exudes character, but is double the size of most of its neighbours.

The original character of the house has been lovingly preserved by the current owners who have cleverly revamped existing areas while making smart decisions on new extensions. One of these decisions was to create a separate entry from Edith Street, not only for convenience, but to access the new section of the home which theoretically could be used as separate double storey dwelling or workplace. The results; 21st century spaces that truly compliment the 19th century home.

With a total of 3 bedrooms, study, 2 bathrooms and living areas both formal and informal, the house has a floor plan that is both practical and flexible. While it would be perfect for a family (especially ones with teenagers needing their own space) couples will also love this superb example of urban living. The presentation throughout is striking.

The blend of traditional character with contemporary features has been thoughtfully considered and the colour palette used has created well-defined warm, intimate spaces. That is refined, opulent and more than just a little bit sexy. Bathrooms are sleek and stylish with a claw foot bath taking centre stage in the main. The kitchen, (will be) a masterpiece of space, practicality with more than a modicum of the flair required to make it worthy of being the hub of the house. No short cuts here on storage, work stations and the use of European appliances.

Linking the indoors to the outdoors has been achieved with the use of sets of striking double doors from both living areas. There are 3 tranquil courtyard gardens on site that appear to encompass the home. Incorporating the elements of wood, stone and water compliments the clever plantings and use of pots. These havens of calm guarantee there is always somewhere to escape to, for your portion of peace. A little ‘Me Time’ in the heart of this vibrant and energetic location.

Practicality speaking, the owners have ensured that despite the overwhelming visual appeal of this vintage house, comfort has not been overlooked for the sake of tradition. There are 5 reverse air conditioning units, natural gas outlets, parking front and back, laundry facilities and every ‘mod con’ required for a functional and surprisingly easy-care home.
